Introduction Mohammed Kuli Qutub Shah was the founder of the ancient city of Hyderabad. His foundation triggered the construction of ' Charminar ' at the heart of the city.Gradually that charming city with historic importance has paved the way for a mega city with wide roads and lushes of greenery. Also Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh is considered to be the cleanest of all cities in India. This city is a perfect blend of tradition and modernization. Lets check the attractions one by one.
What makes Hyderabad the most attractive city?
Conclusion Come, stay and enjoy your vacation at Hyderabad. Tourism in Andhra Pradesh state extends its warm welcome to all
Hyderabad is in Telangana state.
The article has given some good inputs about Hyderabad. Thanks to the author. I want to add the following for the benefit of tourists -
Hyderabad was the capital of Andhra Pradesh. After bifurcation of the state, Hyderabad is left with Telangana. Even though this is a common capital for both, the Andhra Pradesh administration left Hyderabad and shifted to Amaravati. The new capital of Andhra Pradesh. Hyderabad is a very big city expanding in all the four directions. The streets of Hyderabad were wide but as the traffic is very heavy, moving on these roads is very time-consuming. The metro train service Phase 1 is ready to be inaugurated and waiting for a date from Modiji. Coming to the cleanliness of the city as long as you move on 3 or 4 roads of Secunderabad may appear clean. But needs lots of improvement. The roads were good but to be repaired further now.
Hyderabad is a conglomeration of big, small.rich and poor. Any type of family also can get accommodated in this city.
Coming to the places to be visited include Birla Temple, NTR memorial, Prasad Imax, Keesara temple, outer ring road, the museum, the zoo, Buddha statue in tank bund, Shilparamam are important in addition to the places mentioned by the author.
Hyderabad is having very good hotels suiting the requirements of all levels of tourists. Hyderabad airport and Secunderabad railway station are very well connected to all parts of the globe. All varieties of foods are available in many good restaurants, Hyderabad is very famous for pearls and Biryani,
A good place to visit. If you plan for a week all the places in Hyderabad and nearby places can be visited.
Nice article about a city that has a mix of old and new traditions. The Charminar and Golconda Fort are examples of the skill and science that our forefathers had; it's a shame that now, despite the best equipment, many of the public constructions are in a dismal state.
I'm yet to visit the Salar Jung museum, in fact, India post (1978) issued a stamp of Jehangir's dagger and knife that's housed in the museum. My friends earlier used to get us the famous Hyderabad Karachi Bakery biscuits, now they are available in many major cities too.
From the points noted by Dr.Rao, it seems like Hyderabad is caught in the sea of change like any other Indian metro trying to cope with rapid expansion and uncontrolled migration with lack of infrastructure.
Thanks Nataranjan. Surely they will be of immense importance of the people visiting Hyderabad. Ramoji Film City is really a feast for the eyes. I still remember the scary house there. Oh my god! I was in goosebumps visiting it.
Thanks Dr. Rao. The information that you have added are really helpful. The content has been enriched by that.
Well I am from Hyderabad since birth and so how can I keep quite after reading this article which misses most amazing things of this great twin cities. Hyderabad is not a small city. It is in fact divided into three parts. Hyderabad, Secunderabad and Cyber city.
We call Hyderabad as old city which starts from Afzalgunj and ends at Chandrayan Gutta. The places to be seen are Museum, Charminar, Shopping at Pathergatti, Stone bangles shopping at Lad Bazaar, Big vegetable whole sale Market at Miralam Mandi and ultimately Falaknama fort. The Indian Army research center is located here near Chandrayan Gutta.
Then comes Secunderabad. It will start from Tank Bund or Hussain Sagar, famous for Ganesh Idol immersion. There is a Military Cantonment located in Secunderabad. The famous Shamirpet lake, the Deer park and the NALSAR University are also located in this area. Who can forget the Southern Sojourn place of President House in Bolarum which is located in Secunderabad.
And as regards to Cybercity, most of the Hitech IT companies are located here and the people working there would settle down there itself and never come to twin cities.
The author has mentioned some famous tourist spots which people generally visit. However, I feel that Salar Jung museum should be given more prominence in the article. It is one of the biggest museums of India (developed by an individual).
I would like to mention some of the lesser known tourist spots of Hyderabad which the author and other members have not yet mentioned. These are:-
(a) Mahavir Harina Vanasthali National Park: This park is located in Vanasthalipuram, located on the outskirts of Hyderabad city. A tourist can see different types of deer here including black buck and many birds.
(b) Raymond’s Tomb: The tomb was built in the memory of French General Raymond. Raymond’s Tomb is situated at Moosarambagh.
(c) Moula-Ali Dargah: This Dargah is built on a hilltop near Moula-Ali, at the north-eastern part of the city. From the hilltop, the entire city can be seen.
(d) 'Dialogue in the Dark' restaurant: Enjoying a delicious meal in this semi-dark restaurant is a remarkable experience.
(e) Snow World theme park: The Snow World Park is considered to be the first developed theme park in India.
(f) Sudha Car Museum: It is the first and only handmade car museum in the World.
In addition, many other tourist spots like Warangal, Humpi, Konneru, Badami, Belum caves, Kollery bird sanctuary, etc. can be visited from Hyderabad.
The delicious 'biryani' has been mentioned by the author and other members. The non-vegetarians must not forget this delicious treat while visiting Hyderabad.
Congratulations to the author for this informative article.
